Drain Cleaning

Are you constantly dealing with drain clogs, slow-draining drains, and drain backups? Your home’s “arteries” might be clogged and need to be cleared. Swell Plumbing can get your plumbing system arteries healthy again with our complete drain cleaning services.

Signs Your Drains Might Be Clogged
If you are only having problems with one drain, then the problem is probably just a clog in that specific drain. Clogs can generally be easily removed with DIY methods such as plunging or professional clog removal methods such as drain snaking or drain rootering. However, if you have any of the following symptoms, chances are that your entire drainage system is clogged throughout.

• Multiple drains are clogged
• Multiple slow-draining drains
• Gurgling sounds coming from toilet
• Reduced water flow
• Water comes into your bathtub when you run the washing machine

If you ignore these early warning signs that your drains are clogged, you are almost certain to have bigger problems down the road. Take the time to have your drains cleaned now before you experience unsanitary backups or have your entire plumbing system become unusable.

What Causes Drain Clogs?
Again, if the problem is limited to one drain, then it is probably just a clog within that fixture (like if too much hygiene products got stuck in the toilet drain). These drain clogs are generally easily fixed with a plunger or drain snake. If you have problems in multiple drains, especially backups, then the problem might be a clog in the sewage main, which our licensed plumbers can fix with a sewer rooter.

In other cases, the culprit behind drainage problems is corrosion. As pipes age, corrosion builds up inside the pipes. This can decrease the size of the drains by more than half, and even completely block drain pipes. Other materials can also coat the inside of drain pipes, such as oils, grease, and minerals from hard water which get stuck on the corroded pipe.

How We Get Your Drains Clean
At Swell Plumbing of Newport Beach, we always make sure to diagnose plumbing problems correctly. For drain problems, we use the latest video inspection equipment to examine your drains and determine the exact cause of the problem. An accurate diagnose means we can take the right steps to solve the problem, we get the problem fixed the first time around, and that you never have to pay for unnecessary plumbing services.

If video inspection shows that your drain problems are from corrosion or other buildup inside your drainage pipes, we will use a method known as hydro jetting to clear your drains. A hose-like device is snaked inside your drain pipes. At the head of the hose is a special nozzle which sprays streams of pressurized water. The water blasts everything out of its path, leaving your drains clear and clean.

In cases where your pipes are very severely corroded, it might be necessary to replace those pipes. A major sign that your pipes need replacing is that you constantly battle with leaks. Pipe replacement can generally be done quickly and affordably using PEX tubing. Ready more about this on our repipe plumbing services page.
